Re: UEFA Champions/Europa League 2012-13 Thread
I do sometimes envy the fans of English football clubs that don't give a shit how the other English clubs do since there pretty much guaranteed there spot in Europe just by finishing in the top 4. While up north it's a double edged sword, while it is great seeing your rivals losing to shit teams it does mean our co-effeciant takes a battering, not too long ago the the champions would go straight into the group stages of the Champions League and the 2'nd place team would be in the last CL Qualifying round but now if the Champions have to play 2 qualifying rounds in the "worst placed" section of the draw and the 2'nd place teams have to qualify for the Europa League.
Sad Really but we've only got ourselves to blame.
